Which chocolate is best for baking?

seconds | Sep 29, 2007 08:01 PM

I use mainly bittersweet and unsweetened for brownies, cakes, and ice cream and want to know which brands are better. I don't have many options where I am - this is what's available to me in my neighborhood stores. I know there are better chocolates available to me online but I want to just stick to what I can buy at the store. Out of these brands which do you like?

Green & Black
Nestle Chocolatier
Lindt Excellence

The Green & Black and the Lindt were in the candy aisle - can I use those for baking? When you use chocolate in homemade ice cream, is it best to use baking bars or the type intended just for eating?
